I'm trying to find a way to check the view name of the current page.

$views_page = views_get_page_view();
if (is_object($views_page)) {
    //get the view name

I haven't found any function that gives that information. Any suggestions?

views_get_page_view() returns a View object. The name should be stored in $views_page->name.


Once you have a view object, call view::get_title().


Use below code in your module file

function MYMODULE_views_api() {
  return array(
    'api' => 2,
    // might not need the line below, but in any case, the last arg is the name of your module
    'path' => drupal_get_path('module', 'MYMODULE'),

Use below code in your MYMODULE.views.inc

function MYMODULE_views_query_alter(&$view, &$query) {
   echo $view->name; exit;

Relpace MYMODULE with your module name.
